My passion is empowering parents to support and advocate for their child/teen. I'm here to help you identify the right blend of treatment, medication, and resources for your child or teen. My specialty is child and adolescent mental health, including anxiety, depression and mood disorders, and ADHD. I am especially passionate about helping pre-teens and teens thrive! I deeply value a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and enjoy collaborating closely with our therapists and ADHD Coaches at Brave Counseling & Psychiatry. Already have a therapist? Fantastic! I'm happy to collaborate with them.
